The CW recently released the official synopsis for The Vampire Diaries Season 5 Episode 18 and you better brace yourselves, fang fans, because things are about to get doppel-crazy in Mystic Falls — much more than usual!
So far we know three things about TVD #518: 1. It’s titled “Resident Evil.” (Shivers galore!) 2. Caroline Dries and Brian Young co-wrote it. (High five, you guys!) 3. Paul Wesley directed it. (Oh my Salvatore! Deep breaths, deep breaths.) But seriously, how exciting is that? We’re so proud of Paul and can’t wait to see what drama awaits poor Stefan and Elena now that the show’s new villain, Markos, is on the loose in Mystic Falls and apparently planting weird Stepford-esque dreams and lovey-dovey scenarios in their brains.
“Stefan and Elena are suddenly having vision-type situations of each other,” a disgruntled Caroline (who most definitely has the hots for the younger Salvatore, especially now that they’ve cuddled) reveals to someone on the phone. We then get flashes of Stelena making out on a kitchen counter, professing their love, and of them being married with adorable, cherub children running around their feet. These happily-ever-after vignettes are precious, of course, but so freaking random!
Clearly, Stefan and Elena, who are no longer romantically involved, find this entire predicament uncomfortable. You know who else does? Damon. “So…having sex dreams about my brother?” he asks bluntly during a heated conversation with Elena. “Well that’s one way to change the topic,” she fumes, crossing her arms over her chest. Awkward alert!
